Experience the breadth and diversity of contemporary poetry today with this exciting display of all the poetry books published in the United States during the last year. From micro-press chapbooks to CDs to volumes from major commercial publishers, over 2,000 poetry titles are gathered together at Poets House. In conjunction, Showcase Readings will feature poets reading from newly published books.
The 2012 Showcase will include all of the year's new poetry and poetry-related books, chapbooks and multimedia titles published in the United States. More than 2,100 titles were in last year’s exhibition, representing close to 650 U.S. publishers—commercial, university, independent, small and micro-presses.
The only event of its kind, the Poetry Publication Showcase is an annual exhibit of over 1,000 new poetry books and a festival of events celebrating the diversity of poetry in print. The Showcase exhibit features all the year’s new poetry books from commercial, university and independent presses across the nation.
